Sources: BoSox ready to send Lowell to Texas

BY foxsports • December 10, 2009

The Rangers and Red Sox reached preliminary agreement late Wednesday night on a trade that will send Mike Lowell to Texas for catcher/first baseman Max Ramirez, major league sources told

The deal is not final, however, for a number of reasons. Among them: Lowell's hip, which was surgically repaired after the 2008 season, and his right thumb, which he injured toward the end of the season.

"This thing could still blow up," one source said.
